Our Joint Programmes

Conflict Prevention and social cohesion through Local Community Empowerment and Institutional Capacity Building
Haiti, the Western Hemisphere’s poorest country, already struggled with high levels of youth unemployment and violence before the 2010 earthquake, in which more than 200,000 people lost their lives, 1.5 million were displaced and crucial infrastructure was destroyed. The lack of work and the living conditions in temporary settlement camps created new vulnerabilities and security threats. The Joint Programme's aim was to tackle the immediate causes of conflict in 10 violence-prone communities by supporting violence-prevention strategies, including improving the employability of at-risk youth and vulnerable women.
